Businesses often use safety flooring to reduce the chance of customers or staff slipping. The most well known manufacturer of safety flooring is Altro.
The way to tell if you have this type of floor is run your nails over it. If it feels like sandpaper then you can safely say that you have identified this type of floor. If the floor is smooth & silky then it is probably vinyl or rubber. It is the gritty & rough texture of the floor that helps to grab the soles of your feet when working, giving loads of traction & plenty of grip. Unfortunately the texture also grips & holds onto dirt which can be very difficult to remove.
After many years of being called out to advise on cleaning this type of floor we have come up with solutions that we know work.
If you have a large area os safety flooring that is too big to be mopped then we suggest you consider buying a Numatic TTB1840G Twintech Battery Scrubber Dryer.
The TTB1840 is very simple to operate and requires very little training to use. All the controls on the machine are very intuitive, the machine is very lightweight and therefore a pleasure to manoeuvre, even in confined spaces. The smaller size of this machine makes it very easy to navigate around even some of the narrowest of walkways.
The removal of the power cable in favour of battery power means that there is less time spent unhooking the mains cable when it gets snagged and more time spent simply getting on with the job. The worry of knocking items off shelving with the trailing power cable is also removed
